Everyone always says “Oh they grow up so fast!”, but there’s no greater reminder of that, than when your baby starts school! This year, Annabelle starts her first year of kinder and she couldn’t be more excited, so we thought it best to get prepared and buy her first pair of school shoes!
Now even though she’s growing faster than the speed of light it feels, she’s still wears out a pair of shoes even faster! So I wanted to make sure I got her a good quality pair that was properly fit and met her needs! So we headed into our nearest Williams store to get some expert advice and a professional fitting!
The lovely staff at the store were super helpful and talked me through all the points that make a good school shoe, as they have an 8-point podiatry check that is developed in collaboration with a team of leading Australian podiatrists that ensure school shoes provide the perfect comfort and support for growing little feet! I didn’t realise, but the fit of kids shoes is so important not just because they’re in them all day and you don’t want to be uncomfortable, but it can cause lifelong damage if not supported right while still growing!
I was actually really surprised at the extensive range of shoes available, even for little feet! Williams have several well known brands available, including Lynx, which is the shoes we chose in ‘Bloom‘. And best of all, they made the experience totally pain-free and fun for Annabelle, measuring her foot and letting her have a run around the store in her pretty new shoes! You can check out our experience below in the photos!
Williams currently have an amazing back to school offer, with the second pair only half price! You also get a cute light up bouncy ball with any Lynx or Colarado shoes, perfect for keeping little ones occupied while they try on shoes 😉
